The second album of Swedish band Tid where they have taken their music to another level, now telling of major cities and holy temples, along with lyrics on purpose of life and our being here. Like before, your mind will surely be traveling in the worlds of Tid's music, but this time to different destinations. "Giv Akt" sounds like four Swedes on a rooftop in central N.Y.C., urgently carrying out ancient tunes and lyrics, all in order to open the minds of the citizens of this new world. Listen. Move. Dream. Tid is a Swedish four piece orchestra that makes music best described as dark and dramatic, on the verge of film scores; that being the main influence for their music and art. Majestic, mystic and dreamlike music of the darker kind that brings pictures and scenarios to mind. Like a suggestive soundtrack to the escape from the everyday world. Tid is flirting with musical styles long since forbidden by the anxious and wary, thus expressing a wide range of feelings and ideas that might have a positive effect on the stagnated yet seeking and exploring music lovers in the world. Ranging from dark apocalyptic dance music to soundtracks for a dreamlike wandering in ones mind trying to kill reflections of a dark past. With lyrics written in classic verse that brings to mind something old and long since forgotten or hidden - now found and accompanied by Tid's music - this is highly different band. The references to their music are legio, and the wells of inspiration know no boundaries. Tid is music and artwork. The band sees the two as highly connected and completing each other. The band writes music with artwork in mind, a does artwork with music in mind. "Tid" is the Swedish word for Time.
